Antigua made a HUGE move to further welcome yachts to the island!

At a meeting held on Thursday 2nd December between the ABMA, Ministry of Finance and the Comptroller of Customs it was agreed that all goods and services for genuine yachts in transit will be free of all taxes and duties including fuel and provisioning to be used by charter guests........

Full report - HERE

Great solution for yachts! Very welcome. All goods and services free of taxes and duties.

Note this dispensation applies to "yachts in transit" however, 14 days notice from the yacht is required to enjoy the privilege - this may be a problem for charterers and a yacht that needs fuel.

Already, in many countries yachts in transit do not pay duty on parts required for repairs.
